Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Tuesday (Feb 26) while addressing a joint press conference along with ministers of defence and finance, rejected India’s false claims of killing a large number of terrorists during surgical strike in Balakot. He also warned India that Pakistan will respond to India’s act of aggression, after the Pakistan Air Force in a timely response repelled Indian aircraft which violated the Line of Control (LoC) earlier today.
“At 2:55am the Indian planes entered [the Pakistani airspace]. At 2:58am they [were driven out] of our airspace. They fled from the LoC because of the alertness of our Air Force,” the foreign minister said, as he warned not to “underestimate their [the air force’s] ability to defend Pakistan.”
“The action has been done for domestic consumption given the election environment, putting regional peace and stability at grave risk. The forum concluded that India has committed uncalled for aggression to which Pakistan shall respond at the time and place of its choosing,” Qureshi said. “The Bhartiya Janta Party was rejected in five Indian states so it had to resort to something… when it is time for elections, politicians start losing their minds,” he said. “Even within India people are raising questions and saying that the story is not the same as being narrated,” said Qureshi.
